Here are more vintage photos of The Magic Kingdom, taken at night!
In this first one we see the Crystal Palace, which bears a striking resemblance to my summer cottage (the little one, not the big one). Today it is a buffet-style eatery where you can meet characters such as Winnie the Pooh, but I believe that in '71 it was a full-service restaurant. It looks pretty great with hundreds of lights aglow on this November evening.
Still on Main Street, we see a place called "The Cup and Saucer", which obviously sold propane and propane accessories. One humble garland and string of colored lights is all that we get to clue us in on the fact that Christmas is near. Hint: nothing says "Happy Holidays" like a tank of propane!
